"The Gap Year" by Sarah Bird
I enjoyed this book enough to go to the library this morning and check out another book by Sarah Bird. The Gap Year is the story of seventeen-year-old Aubrey Lightsey and her mother Cam. Can is a single mother who works as a lactation consultant. Aubrey's father left them when she was two to join a religious cult. The book alternates between the summer of 2010, when Aubrey should be getting ready to leave for college, and the fall of 2009, when Aubrey's life changed without Cam realizing. A great look at how well we really know those we love the most.
